Introduction to UV/VIS Spectrophotometry: Using Spectrophotometer To Determine Concentration Posted on June 8, 2018 December 19, 2018 by Marcelo Luftman Ultraviolet and visible light range (UV/VIS) is widely applied in research, production and quality control for the classification and study of substances. 0000064912 00000 n Lab Objectives. In the cuvet #4, the dye concentration was 1.2*10-5, and the absorbance was 1.422. /Length 2080 At the end of this lab, check the absorption spectrum of the food dye solution using the Vernier spectrometer. The calibration curve technique consist of the known concentration of analyte that place in the spectrophotometers and is recorded the data obtain. 26 0 obj << This report discusses an experiment to study the relationship of absorbance and concentration, the interaction of electromagnetic radiant energy(ERE) and matter which is an important aspect of the Beer-Lambert's Law. 0000002932 00000 n Introduction The aims of the lab session was to familiarize with the principles, operation and application of a light spectrophotometer. Specific Activity of Amylase Maize malts germinated at Day4 Protein(mg/ml) of malt and maize From Figure 4.

The protein concentration can be evaluated by determining the amount of dye in the blue ionic form and by measuring the absorbance of the solution at 595 nm using a spectrophotometer. A spectrophotometer is a specialized instrument that can be used to measure and quantify the reflectance and transmittance properties of a sample material. 0000004480 00000 n )��/�t�>\g��.��[�s�I�s�|���c�N�������剖�� qC���)x�����;>n� 3�:��E�)��|57e�H�c�b;�P�1}���*�8����R���v���.��J"���H�� %PDF-1.3 %���� In this experiment, we created a set of 8 concentrations of 2 dyes, then used a spectrophotometer to calculate the absorbance of the dyes with respect to both concentration and wavelength. �������r�T���u��zd:O��kҗ�2��N_G%N���ϫ��iF%�8�e��R�HD�~&� 5J�v�ӛD6�+��6 ,�U���JP���׮�&y���Ȑ�HB����]����� � �|��4>�őN$w�VK�k�r�� The stock solution of dye is gray-red; it … Determine the absorbance at 280 nm calculate the concentration and compare it to that which you measure by the dye binding assay. If you plot the absorbance (y-axis) versus the concentration (x- axis) you can determine the concentration of an unknown solution using the graph or by using the equation for a line. 0000000951 00000 n Transfer 250 l from each assay tube to a microtiter plate well. While using the Bradford assay, detergent containing buffer must be avoided as it will disrupt the coomasie dye and produce an inaccurate result. �W�]Ѭ����ڎ����)�d3n��[���k��o�ESo�o�&�U�8��WXr��^��������66=�u�]���6��l�9�v�x�81v�؇-� 4�/��w|����LB}��kN�k�~Mwo(�y�!��q'CWM��N�� W��M��������ތ̈́��:%���Q7�A����Ѯ���^�Z4P=�����C��^���Cx��:> endobj ��l�l�Ȼ��;5|d߫��C@۩����2����)t�i������?

By measuring the absorbance of a set of standard solutions of known concentrations, you can create a calibration curve that shows how the response of the instrument (absorbance) changes with concentration. Through this curve you can determine the unknown protein concentration by use of Beer’s Law. with values of absorbance measured by the spectrophotometer in order to analyze four samples of unknown phosphate concentration. Question: 46 G.C. Add 250 l distilled water to a well as reference blank. Phosphorus is a vital nutrient involved in microbial growth. 2 To answer the guiding question, you will use the UV/VIS spectrometer to identify the components of the mixture and the calibration curves generated by the class to determine the concentration of each component. 532 0 obj << /Linearized 1 /O 535 /H [ 1444 373 ] /L 168781 /E 78420 /N 4 /T 158022 >> endobj xref 532 30 0000000016 00000 n 0000006375 00000 n 1-6: LABORATORY REPORT Name Date Kimbury Moya Lab Partners' Names: TA's Name: YOU MUST SHOW ALL YOUR CALCULATIONS TO RECEIVE CREDIT FOR THEM! The stock dye must be of the same color as your unknown sample. This unit describes spectrophotometric and colorimetric methods for measuring the concentration of a sample protein in solution. Jo Melville and Giulio Zhou 9/27/2012. Although there are a wide variety of protein assays available none of the assays can be These dyes are highly toxic. 0000002267 00000 n Then, the data is plotted by using graph to determine the concentration of unknown. �ꃧ#M.rg�,�i��#����d�������ѕN��_��H ��Us_7ME+�-oY�M@~ܵ���Bkt�p&���*�V%R1a�#i����e����s�\�W�%4���ݦ��N,K���g9�L���?HI����̪��\\uP����%��С�hQ1`�U�PmyQ��WO��1:Ҹl%ar1#m�s�4V��>z������*�7� D��п1�}�5��=�l�Vu|6��;?ɁBƛ��6X�[7< `����a�3����`>D^�4�x���ig� Abstract To determine the pKa of an acid-base indicator, specifically bromothymol blue, different amounts of both 0.1M NaOH and 0.1 M HCl were added to a solution of fixed concentration of bromothymol blue and the pH was monitored via pH meter. Beer’s law states the absorbance is directly proportional to the concentration of a solution. 1 Abstract. One dropperful of each solution are added to the test tubes.
